Nora Roberts has long been one of my favorite romance authors. I especially enjoy her Irish trilogies. Having recently read her new novel, Angels Fall, I finally decided to go back and read some of her books written under the pseudonym of J. D. Robb. A friend recommended this series, so I jumped into the first in her "death" series.
NAKED IN DEATH was really good; I couldn't put it down. This series is not true romance; it's more of a romantic mystery, which only adds to the intrigue for me. What makes it so different is that it takes place in the year 2058 and there are many innovative new concepts, such as "off-planet travel," to name just one. I leave the rest for you to discover and enjoy.
Of course, her main character, Lieutenant Eve Dallas, is a strong, independent woman ... just the way I like my heroines. And her Irish hero (what else?), a billionaire named Roarke, is more than a match for Eve. They make a fascinating, intriguing couple.
I don't know how Nora manages to come up with "winners" each and every time she writes a book, but she does. What a remarkable talent and a remarkable author! I look forward to reading all the books in this series as well as her entire body of works.
